Primary School races in Lydd, Kent, this Sunday (March 9th) at 10 to 11am

There is a small U11 race on Sunday in Lydd that might appeal to U11 athletes.  The Kent Primary Schools XC race due to be held in Canterbury this weekend was cancelled, at the last minute due to conditions, so another race has been organised.  This is now part of the Lydd Half Marathon organised by Nice Work who've agreed to accommodate at the last minute.  So far the entry fields are small, 10 per race, but the quality is high.  All the races on a Sunday are 800m in order to fit them in.

They can enter for club or School as they wish.  The weather for this Sunday is forecast to be glorious and there are no other children's races this weekend in Kent or Surrey or Essex as far as I know.  The Inter-counties does not apply to this age group,

So some might be interested if you could pass the word around.  Many parents are intending to go into Camber after the event and thus make a day of it at the seaside in the spring sunshine.  A couple of Thanet runners are showing up and competing already.

Parents need to register simply by the child's name, school year, club or school and parent or guardian's name and mobile number.

3 pounds entry.  Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and goody bags donated by Sweatshop, nothing fancy, but they don't run for the trinkets anyway.

Races are 10am to 11am every 10 mins and distance is 800m on grass.

Conditions are soft underfoot but well drained and flat.
